Fighting The Devil


When we argue - I must concede
Because on this the devil feeds.
The devil gets his greatest sensation
When he disrupts any relation.

He is there waiting for the spark to ignite
So we can begin to fight.
He knows that love can conquer all
And waits for us to weaken so we can fall.

Like a lion waiting for its prey
In the bush he will lay.
The devil has many stomping grounds
And you never know when he's around.

His greatest victory is when we go astray
And to GOD we no longer pray.
Yet he can not tell what's in the heart of man
When we decide to take a stand.

Since We were blessed at our birth
With his holy water from this earth.
And we were taught right from wrong
And we became very strong
We will fight whatever the devil
throws our way, and live to fight another day.

So to the devil I say to you
With a pure heart there is
Nothing that you can do.

We have - FAITH, HOPE, AND LOVE
Given to us from up above.

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
